Re: TV plays color, dvd black and white

Hello again, well, it seems as though the circuit board in the back of the tv was the culprit. He hooked the dvd to the front of the tv and it now works! Poor Dad, and everyone thot it was him!
He did learn a quick lesson on "Button Pushing" though!
Thank you so much for taking the time to help figure this out. Have a great week!

Re: TV plays color, dvd black and white


If I understand your post/description, the DVD plays OK except it is in Black & White. If so, change setting from PAL to NTSC or vice versa depending on the region you are in. US operates on NTSC, Most of Europe is PAL.

Hope that this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

VHS plays in colour and DVD plays in black and white.

there is a circuit in the color section to put the tv to black and white if the color subcarrier is missing from the broadcast signal.
it is called a color killer and needs to be adjusted.
it is for a technician to do.
it operates off the 3.58mhz color subcarrier.

New lcd tv and dvd player is playing movies in black & white

1. Verify connections are color coded.

2. If they are correct, take out movie, press Play/Stop at same time on the front of the unit (not remote) to reset any settings that may have been changed.

Picture only shows in black & white when playing DVD

Same problem with an older JVC player. One end of the S-video cable was loose. Pushed in in tight and everything ok again. Cheap fix if it works for you.

Playing movies in black and white

Use a scart lead to connect it to the TV, that should cure it.

How do you reset the parental control code?

Called Zenith.  They said: turn on the DVD player.  Hit "set-up". Scroll down to the "lock" icon.  Scroll over to "Rating". Scroll over to unlock.  Enter 0000.  Click on Ok.  Enter 0000 again, click Ok again.  Menu should read unlock.  Voila!
